  1. RE: Why Doesn't The AMA and the Hobby as a whole market to minorities?

    This thread is silly. I can't believe I'm even responding. Racism is a crutch that some just will not let go of. This is obviously a case of that.

    RE: Nitro models pusher Bobcat?

    I had to add the 1.5 lb to the nose, I'm running an O.S. 61 W/ stock muffler. That was setting the CG @ 6.9". I like the 11" cg idea better, Then it would balance just fine;)

    RE: Looking for a tough plane...HELP?!?!

    It is possible, but not likely. I take great care when building. Another reason that it could break clean at the fuse is that the area where the stab goes into the fuse acts as a fulcrum. With the...
